    One of my favorite episode's was a few yrs back on end the first Saturday. A few of us was in the neighbors barn with food an beverages with 3 or 4 deer hanginging the front part when our local WCO came walking in, he said hello to us then wanted to know if we wanted another deer, he had a illegally killed doe to get rid of :D. so we took his deer and he left, he never checked our deer or us.
    My buddy goes to work Monday morning to listen to his boss crying about a WCO taking his deer away from him, fining him and losing his license for three years. Yep, same deer :).

    I've even hunted on the WCO's land, we got a doe there last year. I saw a big buck sneaking away but couldn't shoot in that direction cause wco's house was behind it.

    Seems like this Full moon has got the deer hiding during the day light, I'm seeing tracks an scrapes/rubs but no deer :(. Guess maybe if I try turkey hunting I'll see deer :) an fake em out.

    Didn't get out this weekend at all. Finished up two bathrooms we painted instead. I don't like hunting when there are thunderstorms predicted!:eek: Next weekend is the last weekend for bow only hunting, then the guns start booming. I'm looking forward to gun hunting this year.:D:cool:
    Good Luck Bruce, hope you get a nice one!

    Be safe if you do decide to go out. I have had my share of "Tree Rides" over the years!

    Need my "Love It Button" Hilarious. Funniest part is, I know guys like that. We have to put them on suicide watch for a few weeks after the season ends if they kill a deer!:eek:
